Confusion: Pangu resignations not tendered, Yopiyopi says he's still Melanesian Alliance leader

“What Sam Basil did was uncalled for. I am still the  party leader of Melanesian Alliance.  They have gone ahead and changed the  party logos.  I want to let them know that I am here at Laguna. They should be here.” [caption id="attachment_190075" align="alignnone" width="800"] Wosera-Gawi MP, Joseph Yopiyopi[/caption] But joining the Laguna camp is highly unlikely for the Bulolo MP and others who became Melanesian Alliance members  this week.  On Tuesday, after the parliament session,  Sam Basil and six other former Pangu MPs announced  that   their  expression of interest to join the party had been accepted. Meanwhile,  Pangu’s General Secretary, Morris Tovebae, told an earlier  news conference this morning that ‘former’  MPs who have joined the  Melanesian Alliance  have not formally resigned  which means, Basil’s lot are still,  on paper,  Pangu MPs.

“I am extending  an invitation to Sam Basil and other MPs who joined Melanesian Alliance that they are still welcome to join.  The door is still open.
The Registrar of Political Parties  has called on the  Pangu and the Melanesian Alliance parties  to  sort out the confusion today.]]>
